(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Official statistics show that trade institutions were responsible for 530 breaches, while 238 tickets were issued against cars and lorries.

The Department of Public Works and Services in Ras Al Khaimah has recorded 829 anti-environment violations across the emirate since February 2013. The department, as part of its Raqib or Monitor service, which was launched on February 28 this year, intensified its inspection raids to protect the environment and ensure public cleanliness.

Official statistics show that trade institutions were responsible for 530 breaches, while 238 tickets were issued against cars and lorries. The department attributed 61 violations to individuals.

A senior official here said the most environmental violations were committed in April, hitting 164. "The breaches spotted were recklessly committed by motorists, passengers, and trade institutions," he said.

Eng Ahmed Al Hammadi, director-general of the RAK Department of Public Works and Services, said 158 violations were recorded in May. "The intensified inspection raids have significantly reduced the violations committed, with 81 reported in March and 86 in June." July, August and September recorded 77, 51, and 53 anti-environment violations. "However, the violations rose in October to 56, and then to 95 in November."

Al Hammadi said the department spares no effort to ensure public cleanliness, protect the environment, and participate in the development process. "We do not want to penalize or fine people. On the contrary, we cancel any fine if proved unjustified."

The department cancelled six fines and pardoned 13 people for different reasons from February till November this year, he added.
